Softball Defeats Leesville

Week in Review

vs. Leesville
On Friday, March 16th at Leesville High the Varsity Caps defeated the Pride 4-3 in a close, exciting game.  The Caps were down 2-0 after 5 innings, but came back in the 6th to tie the game on a 2-run, inside-the-park homerun by Junior Centerfielder Katie Munger.

In the top of the 7th the Caps went up 4-2 on runs by Junior Third Baseman Cole Bellamy and Sophomore Catcher Shannon Denny.  The Pride attempted a two out comeback in the bottom of the 7th with a long drive to centerfield and a runner on first.  With the runner scoring, Freshman Pitcher English Dean cutoff the long throw from Munger, firing to Junior Second Baseman Morgan Buonpane who made the tag at second for the game ending final out.

Congratulations to the Varsity Caps on a hard fought win.  Freshman Pitcher English Dean went the distance, giving up three runs on four hits over the seven innings.

vs. Millbrook
On Tuesday, March 13th the Varsity Caps lost to Millbrook 6 to 4 at Lions Park.  The Caps took the lead after a 2 RBI hit by Freshman English Dean which scored Junior Second Baseman Morgan Buonpane and Sophomore Catcher Shannon Denny in the top of the first.  The Caps scored runs in the third (Buonpane) and fourth (Junior Third Baseman Cole Bellamy) innings, but couldn’t hold on against scattered hits and runs by the Wildcats.

Also on Tuesday at Millbrook Exchange Park the Junior Varsity notched its second win of the season against the Millbrook JV.  Final score 9 to 6 Caps.
